Forum: classic_tv Subject: The Evil That Men Do

I've just become aware of something that really ticks me off. Glancing at these two links:

http://springfield-massachusetts.olx.com/1953-hollywood-offbeat-dvd-tv-steve-randall-classic-iid-71967839

http://forsale.oodle.com/view/1953-hollywood-offbeat-dvd-tv-steve-randall/1870021706-springfield-ma/

I see that some unscrupulous operator has merely downloaded this episode of Hollywood Offbeat and is passing it off as some rare used tv show. They even have the nerve to use my description word-for-word! I uploaded it for the strict purpose of providing it for others to enjoy for free, seeing as it's a public domain episode. What have other users on here done when you encountered this being done to your efforts and uploads? I'm just seeking advice on whether or not I should do anything to stop it or not waste my efforts in a lost cause.

I noticed quite a while back that several were selling Playhouse 90 - The Plot To Kill Stalin,which I uploaded to here.Noticed it when I was looking for other Playhouse 90 episodes.At first I thought,damn it,I got sucked into buying the only common episode of the series.Then it hit me,is common because they are downloading it from here,and then selling it.By the way,other episodes are available,but everybody wants a fortune for them.But hey,look at the bright side,are at least selling the stuff that they steal from here at a reasonable price.

I recently "contributed" to the IA a couple of very rare old TV shows that were given to me a long time ago by the late actress who starred in both shows. I was helped by our friend, guyzilla, who handled the conversion and uploading. Many thanks to him.

I realized before I dug out my 25+ year old tape that others would no doubt distribute these shows once they were posted on the IA. I knew too that other items posted here have been sold by PD DVD companies. At first I was slightly annoyed by the thought, but I believe it's more important to share PD items freely and openly. I'd rather people see and enjoy those two shows than for them to be forever hidden, stashed or forgotten somewhere.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

I say let 'em try to sell this stuff! Who the heck would pay for it when you can get it for free here! If you guys think I've uploaded a lot of stuff here, it's nothing compared to how many dvds I've made from the stuff that everybody else was good enough to put up! I also make a lot of dvds off of TCM! I find there's usually something good on most of the time whenever I tune in. Of course when another Marvel movie comes out on dvd, ok, I'll pay for that. Other than that, I usually make my own dvds.

Cosmico, that's probably the best way to look at it. At least people are getting a chance to see these rare shows, and by doing so, maybe they won't be lost or forgotten.

Thanks. I just wish I had more rare oldies to share, but that was it.

I don't have many, either. I did have one I was going to share, but I couldn't locate it. It got to be so long that I couldn't find it, that it turned out I couldn't upload it anyway because of some stipulation about that specific show. But, we gave our all!

You're most welcome. Wish I had more old rare shows like that. Most of my collection is long gone after too many cross-country moves.

We contribute because we are all GOOD people who want to share. No matter what, there are going to be BAD people out there, that's just the way it works. In order for good to win over bad, good has to take a few punches. But trust me, GOOD will win the fight in the long run.
